Super simple Spring Wreath

Hey there!  Today I have a quick tutorial on a "cutesy" spring wreath.
And I say cutesy because that bunny and bow can't be described any other way!  Lol!  This is my first Spring wreath and with Easter just around the corner I thought I'd let Mr. Bunny make an appearance.  ;)

Here's a quick tutorial on how I created this wreath.
 You will also need: a hot glue gun, wire cutters, and double sided tape.


Adhere the burlap anywhere on the foam wreath with tape or a push pin.


Wrap some of the double sided tape around the entire foam wreath and begin wrapping the burlap around.


Wrap around to where the burlap began, adhering the end of the burlap with double-sided tape.


Place one last strip of tape and adhere the edge.  I used Scor-Tape, which is super strong and works wonders!  :)


Here is the foam wreath completely wrapped in burlap.

Using wire cutters, snip the heads of the silk hydrangea flowers.  I used about nine of them.

I'm always so torn with the possibilities when I create.  I placed just one hydrangea off to the side with a couple of the leaves and I thought it looked great. :)  I'm kinda a sucker for clean, classic, simple looks. 

 BUT, I was wanting a fuller wreath for Spring and Easter, so I added the rest of the hydrangeas using hot glue, and added the frou frou green bow I made using the Bow- E Z, and of course, Mr. Bunny.  ;)


I've never owned a decorative bunny in my life and I'm still on the fence about it but, my little girl loves seeing him when we come through the door, so he will stay for now. :)

Mr. Bunny.  ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Janice Aleen. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also glad to stop by your blog "Made to Create" and the post on it "Super Simple Spring Wreath". They are absolutely gorgeous and beautiful. Well may I take this time to introduce a program our church has of encouraging young people as well as adults from the West to come to Mumbai, India to work with un in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to give them new hope, future and purpose. I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 35yrs in this great I city of Mumbai a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We would love to have you come with your friends to work with us during your summer/ Christmas vacation. Looking forward to hear from you. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede.
I do like the way you have presented this situation and it really does provide us a lot of fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through what precisely I have witnessed, I basically wish as the actual comments pack on that individuals continue to be on issue and in no way embark upon a soap box of some other news du tour. All the same, thank you for this superb piece and though I do not really agree with the idea in totality, I value your perspective.coach outlet ....Cccam Server
